Tomorrow is the day that we wait all winter for. If you go out, have a great day and good luck. There is much more to being out on the stream than simply catching fish. Take in everything that nature has to offer and please consider taking a kid fishing or introduce a non fishing adult to this great sport. As always, send us your pictures and stories to email@example.com.
Senate Bill 30 authorizes the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) to establish fees charged to anglers and boaters, namely fishing licenses and permits and boat registrations and titles. The Senate has passed SB 30 and it now moves on to the House of Representatives. We are asking you to please contact your representatives with your comments and / or support of this very important Bill.
Letters are also needed to be sent to the House leadership and their contact information is given below.

This bill is at a CRITICAL point. Last year the House leadership let the bill die. Local Representatives Jeff Wheeland and Garth Everett support the bill. Please contact your local Representative and urge them to vote on SB 30.

Senate Bill 30 Talking Points
A very interesting public meeting of Susquehanna Chapter TU on Wednesday, April 12th at 7 PM will explore how our beautiful streams of Northcentral PA became favorites of nationally known fishing luminaries, authors, innovators, and angling getaways for notable public figures including U.S. Presidents, Vice Presidents and Senators. Over the past 60-70 years, Chapter members Bill O’Connor and Don Daugenbaugh have met, hosted, guided, and become friends with many of these prominent people. Along with other Chapter members, Bill and Don will share their unique experiences and times on our local streams with such memorable characters. The meeting will be at the First Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall at the Rear of 102 East Third Street in Williamsport.
Due to the storm, we won’t be meeting Tuesday night for fly tying. Please pass the word to everyone that you know that were attending because I may not have everyone’s emails correct – sending by blind copy.
